We have learned that one key component of educational success is parental involvement. Making a financial sacrifice is a strong incentive for getting and keeping parents involved in their children’s schools and in the educational process. The amount of a M.O.S.T. scholarship is determined by family size and income relative to tuition, less any financial aid provided by the school.

M.O.S.T. scholarships match the demonstrated commitment of families with educational choices that line up with their child’s learning potential. The scholarships may be used at any of our partner schools which are listed on our website (link in bio).
